The Golden Age has left its marks in the old city centre of Medemblik and the surrounding villages. The architectural history of the typical Haubargs dates back to the seventeenth century. The arrangement consists of a hospitable reception with coffee and a local treat, followed by a hike to Emmapark. Here you will board an authentic horticulturist’s barge for a tour that will take you to the historic village of Opperdoes. The skipper will tell you all about the surrounding area and the ‘Zeevarende Beurs’ [a type of insurance for skippers] founded in 1635 in the village.
